Based on the play L'Occident by Henry Kistemaeckers (Paris, 4 Nov
1913).
Hassouna (Alla Nazimova), the sheik's daughter, helps a French soldier, Captain de Cadiere
(Charles Bryant), escape from the Bedouins, and because of her betrayal is left to die in the desert.
The girl is captured by a wandering tribe and sold to Rambert (Hardee Kirkland), a circus
proprietor who has been looking for a dancer. Cadiere sees her at the circus and adopts her despite
the protests of his wife Helene (Sally Crute). Hassouna, who loves Cadiere, consoles him after his
wife elopes with another man, but her love turns to hatred when she learns from Taieb (E.L.
Fernandez), her former suitor, that the captain was responsible for the death of her family. She
plans to exact her revenge by ruining the reputation of Ensign Arnauld (Donald Gallaher), Cadiere's
beloved nephew, but learns in time that Taieb's accusations were false and that her love for Cadiere
is too great to do him harm.
